Understanding the high-temperature corrosion behavior of alloys is an important step toward the selection of appropriate alloys for process equipment. This article briefly describes the high-temperature corrosion modes that are frequently encountered in the chemical process industry. These modes include oxidation, carburization, metal dusting, nitridation, halogen corrosion, and sulfidation.
